    A grim, gorgeous milieu of societal depth and cunning design. That its mechanics slot so naturally into its environment, giving players the freedom and choice to explore, influence and infiltrate means that Dishonored 2 represents the very best gaming has to offer.

    What a sequel should be: bigger, more ambitious, but with a solid grasp on what the original was and wanted to be. A true example of how to design a world and an infiltration game.

    Dishonored 2 is a pleasure to play… the ability to switch between mystical abilities, firearms or your trusty retractable blade (apparently some people don’t appreciate a folding blade) increases the variety of the game and leads to some very interesting interactions.

    Dishonored 2 is the example of a perfect sequel, a game which improves several flaws of the first title bringing to life a memorable experience. Arkane Studios managed to create a masterpiece, especially for whoever loves the stealth genre.

    As a story, it may well be lacking, but as a collection of expertly crafted play spaces where design and mechanics reinforce and respond to your agency in myriad delightful and engaging ways, Dishonored 2 is pure magic.

    Dishonored 2 is a complex game with a simplistic first-person action wrapper. It offers up a variety of different gameplay options to run through the game with, while presenting a bigger world for you to stretch those options out in. It’s a great follow-up to the first game and certainly improves on its ideals.

    Feels like a tiresome retread – enjoyable enough when it sticks to the old script, but frustrating in its disappointment when it does attempt anything new. With a rushed story, colorless characters, and total misuse of a whole new playable character, the best I can say is that I didn’t hate it. I didn’t particularly like it, but I didn’t hate it. Dishonored deserves more than that.

    Lets talk about Dishonored 2 The Stealth / Action Game you are looking for.

    This game borrows heavily from he first Dishonored formula and while some think that more of the same, its sooo good to have more of this good stuff!!! Think of it as Bacon, more is the right way to go XD.

    The setting of the world is fascinating, Karnaca is more colourful than Dunwall but its still as sinister in their alleys as the Capital, i enjoy a lot the atmosphere and the overall aesthetic of the world, pretty nice concept art there, gonna get the artbook soon jeje.

    The game shines in its gameplay and combat, is good, variated and very satisfying, especialyl with executions, they are fast and furious, plus the gun and bow has impact and its also a blast to shoot all up!! that of course if you want to play a high chaos gama, because Dishonored 2 has the great approach of stealth!! every mission can be taken in a number of ways and you have plenty options to play as a non lethal character. its dam good to be a badass killing witches and the royal guard as its great to stealth the ºººº out of them as well. Also it have a very good arrange of magic powers that are different between the 2 playable characters, which can add a little extra on a second playthrough.

    Regarding the story i think it plays very safe, maybe the least interesting aspect of the game, but its more like a vengeance story. Yet its good enough to enjoy. On the bright side they are some amazing missions, particularly one in which you bend time and play the same mission in present and past at the same time and its veryyyyy niceeeeeeee!!!

    Level design is also great, filled with rooms and places to discover, in a way this helps the multipath aspect of the game and makes you feel like shadow, nicking and learning the secrets of both common and important people of the game.

    In short you can be a badass fighter that bring noise and rightful vengeance to your foes, a lethal assassin never spotted but deadly still or a ghost like the wind and still regain your throne and tip empires

    Its a damn good game to play :)
